Surgery, Monday morning.

Friday, November 4, 2011 by Snowman | Discussion: Community

Monday morning 8AM (Real world time)
I'm having my gallbladder removed. It's been causeing me nothing but trouble the past years.

OUT!! BE GONE, YOU FOUL THING!

Nervous? Not the slightest. I'm actually looking forward to it!

The procedure is quite "simple". Can be done in one of two ways.

1. They poke 4 sticks through my belly, and cut it out that way - and I'll be released the same day. (For some serious pampering by my girlfriend)

2. They drag out the big chainsaw, slice my up and remove it the 'old style' way - 2-3 days recovering in hospital. (Fuck that.....)

I'll update my Facebook about the progress from Monday afternoon - when or if I wake up.

snowby.... i urge you to consider this before surgery.

there is a natural way to remove gallstones and not get butchered at the hospital.

I will find a good link for you,.

I wouldnt recommend this if i hadnt done it myself, i have done it, and the result was one HUGE gallstone (passed naturally) and about 3 or for little ones.

http://www.relfe.com/gall_stone_cleanse.html

scroll down to "the cleanse" and do it. you will not be sorry, and again, ive done this myself and it WORKS, and no pain either, just a natural passing through the you know where....... (backside)

you will feel nausious, when you take it and the next morning, but you will get results about 16 hours later or earlier..

We are a bunch of crocks. I'm going in Thursday to have an operation on my back (5 effin' years it's taken them to decide).

I don't think I'll be fit to mess with the nurses 

 

That's not what I've heard about the remarkable recuperative powers of Vulcans...

If you die, can I have your skin collection?

If I die, the disc with my collection on it will self destruct within 5 seconds. We're mentally connected.

Leave the nurses alone, Snow....

Don't worry, Paul. I've got my own personal sexy nurse to take care of me.

Can they make you better looking while you're in there too? 

Sorry, Bryan. They are only doctors, not miracle makers.

Eat as much fat-laden food as you can between now and then. 'Cause it's gonna be restricted after the surgery. 

Nope, Deven. Nothing will have to change. I had a chat with the butch.... doctor and he asured me that I could eat/drink/act the same as before the surgery. He had had the same operation, and he is still eating the same food/shit as before.

Kitty, I urge you to read the OP one more time.
It's not gallstones, this time. They were removed last year. This time the whole friggin bladder is going.

Thank you, everyone.
I will be in good hands before, during and after the operation.

Dunno what the hospitals are like in your neck of the woods, but if it were me, I'd be putting 'Do NOT Remove' labels on all the bits they're not supposed to be taking out/chopping off... to be sure, to be sure.

Also, place a label across your forehead/chest/whatever saying 'NO Extras... well, you don't wanna wake up with accidental breast implants, do ya?

Anyhow, joking aside, all the best for your surgery.

What really worries me is they tend to put an ID tag on your wrist ...and another on your ankle.....

 

What....are they saying there's a chance those parts may end up in separate places on their own?

Hadn't thought of it like that before... but yeah!   Perhaps surgery candidates should do all their own labeling.

I think I'd have another label just to be sure I woke up with ALL the parts I'm supposed to.... "I Am NOT an Organ Donor ... well not at this stage in my life.   Thing is, I'd have to write it in multiple languages, given how many foreign nationals we have working in our hospitals while Aussie doctors [and nurses] make huge, huge bucks [ten times what they can ear here] in the Middle East. 

And no, it's not that I have a problem with foreign nationals working here as medicos, so long as they're qualified...

I am, though, highlighting the greed of Aussie doctors [and nurses] who desert our shores to become instant millionaires.  One of my former nurses recently did 3 - 6 month tours of Saudi Arabia; Dubai; Kuwait and Iraq as a nurse, and came back a multi-millionaire after just 2 1/2 years.  She used to be a kind and generous, caring person, but sadly the money [she brags 3.6 million] has changed her for the worst and she's now a totally stuck-up bitch who wouldn't give you the time of day.

The snowdude is first on the op table. So if he comes out ok I'll feel a bit safer getting the chop

btw, the id tag is so you don't forget who you are - it happens at our age

Or it's just in case your visitors are senile, forgot your face and need a gentle reminder.

There again the ID tags are for the ME's office... so's the right sti... corpse gets autopsied.

Piece of cake Snowy. My granddaughter had it done through the belly button not long ago and she was playing sports 3 weeks later

Doreen you haven't been on here for 4 years. You must have been busy doing important things. Sorry you missed the Karma explosion during that time. Doesn't really matter as Doc and wiz took most of it.
